Antonio Thornton was born January 2, 1960 to the late Dorothy and Charles Thornton in Baltimore, Maryland where he also received his education.
"Tony" or "Big Bacon Bones" as he was known by many grew up in Baltimore with his close knitted family. Growing up with a family as big as the "Thornton's" one never knew who was who because everyone looked alike. Nearly 40 of them running through Baltimore streets, but you knew when Tony came y'all better run. He didn't play along with his best friends "Lee and Larry".
Tony's sudden death has shaken and sadden many. There are some people you just expect to live forever, no matter what. "Uncle Tony" was everyone's favorite, even many who weren't blood related. The corny sense of humor and lame jokes will be greatly missed, by all whom you've came in contact with.
He is preceded in death by, father Charles Thornton, mother Dorothy Thornton, grandmother Rosa Scott, five nephews and one niece.
Left behind to cherish fond memories are: three sons Antonio Jr., Brian and Antonio Jr.; 5 grandkids, Tyler, Tasia, Antonio, Riley and Jayden; aunts, Mae and Barbara Anne; brothers/best friends, Charles D., Charles T :, Dwayne Sr., Darryl, Larry, Robert, Robin; sisters, Delores, Charlene, Karen, Demeatria, Rose and Kimberly; mass amount of nieces, nephews, cousins and friends.
No more suffering or pain. Don't be afraid to go forward, you have family awaiting your arrival. Moms and daddy are ready to greet you.
